Handicapped Awareness Programs of US
Let me share with you how H.A.P. All got started. In fall of 1988 1 entered Hart High School as a freshman, not only a freshman but, a freshman with Cerebral Palsy. I was tormented by the remarks such as "Where's your mommy?” I decided that I was partly to blame. I did not teach them how to deal with me. The all Handicapped Children act of 1975 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 have been passed. However, these law; did not legislate attitudes toward people with mental and physical challenges.
H.A.P was founded in 1988 to help bridge the gap towards people with disabilities. The program focuses on educating about people with disabilities and also helps people with their own handicaps.
